I came across an article in The Hindu that spoke about the term “curation”, and how with time, the term has gained (or lost) so much of it’s meaning.
The reason I found this article riveting is because, as an artist, I have come across several individuals and companies that boast themselves of having “curated” dance performances. There exists a certain thrill in using such a fancy term, I presume. However, this article made me realise that the term means so much more than it’s given credit for. And that it might not be the best idea to throw the term around so casually.
It’s quite the eye-opener, this article. Find the article here: www.thehindu.com/opinion/op-ed/the-meaning-of-curation/article22271431.ece/amp/
